Just coming back from our European conference #agilefac2019, this year on agile and facilitation. Thankful to be part of this vivid professional community and proud for having been accredited CPF Certified Professional Facilitator last October 2018.
My understanding of my role as facilitator and executive coach is to support the leadership Teams I work with to have the conversations they wouldn’t have otherwise, starting by creating a safe place for them. This article gives you some tips on how you can do this when your facilitator /team coach isn’t there.
How do you think your next Leadership Team meeting would go if you also include the following questions:
What if agenda topics were listed as questions the team needs to answer?
TIP: The idea behind is that you become clearer on the purpose of each agenda item.
Example: instead of writing “Programme Plenary session National sales Convention” you could write as agenda item: “What topics will ensure full engagement during the plenary session?” (if the item is about selecting topics and the goal is to have people engaged) Ask me, an experienced facilitator to shadow one of your meetings to offer feedforward and share best practices!
